Does the above sound like a bit like ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' to you? No surprise, seeing how '''''Kiddy Grade''''' was probably intended as its SpiritualSuccessor of sorts. However, despite its lighthearted, LovelyAngels-themed start, this show gets progressively darker and moodier, dipping into such difficult themes as [[WhoWantsToLiveForever problems faced by an immortal]] and person vs. society and socioeconomic conflict. ''Kiddy Grade'' is a true production tour-de-force, starting with the design, directorial and dictational talent of production team Creator/{{Gimik}}, throttled by the {{GONZO}} animation prowess and impressive voice acting (yay for Creator/AyaHirano and Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard), rounded off by an impressive musical score by Shiro Hamaguchi. This will make the series worth taking a look at even if you stay indifferent to the questions raised in it.

The show originally aired in Japan in 2002-03. A sequel series was announced in 2006, to be animated by asread rather than GONZO, and while a pilot DVD was released, little info was revealed until February 2009, when it was [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-02-26/kiddy-grade-spinoff-kiddy-girl-and-announced re-announced]] under the official title ''{{Kiddy Girl-and}}'', now to be animated by Satelite and set [[TimeSkip 50 years after]] the original. In the interim, the series had been re-run on TV in Japan and re-released as a DVD box set, and also released to selected theatres as three cut-down movies.

''Note: ''Anime/{{Kiddy Girl-and}}'' has its own page, so please don't put tropes relating to that show here.''

In the Star Century year 0165, humanity has long spread across the galaxy and brought all it's old problems with it. Crime rates in the future are still as high as ever. An agency of [[TheGovernment the Galactic Union]] called "Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs" ([[FunWithAcronyms G]][[GratuitousGerman O]][[http://www.woerterbuch.info/?query=Gott&s=dict&l=en TT]]) has its own special way of dealing with these problems - it dispatches duos of superpowered enforcers referred as "ES Members" to deal with galactic law breakers. Among their number are two who... tend to stand out a bit: Éclair and Lumière. Behind their appearance of just your run-of-the-mill, happy-go-lucky C-class agents lurks a far more sinister past soiled with blood, desperation, and bitter conflict with the very world order they are now charged with protecting.

* AristocratsAreEvil: With a few notable exceptions, most of the Nouvlesse are selfish, vainglorious assholes who are blatantly contemptuous of all citizens of non pure Earth-bred stock in the galaxy.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Everyone seems to forget that Eclipse approved of the killing of unarmed civilians and even ordered Éclair to help out, which caused Éclair's revolt in the first place. However, this is justified when you realize it was part of BatmanGambit of Eclipse. At the time, she was under heavy scrutiny by the Nouvlesse, so she had to KickTheDog at the time to ensure that Eclair would engineer the downfall of GOTT (at the time), which allowed her to fake her own demise, and in the interim she stayed dead until she could come back to life and resume control minus the interference from above.]]
* KillAllHumans: [[spoiler: Alv]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Chevalier D'Autriche]].
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Éclair, self-inflicted]].
